Tropical Rainforest Biome

By: Ian Derushia

Location of the Tropical Rainforest:

One third of the world's tropical rain forests are in Brazil and Southeast Asia. Rain forests are usually located near the tropics and the equator.


Since the rainforest is located near the equator and near the tropics, this diverse Biome is very humid and hot. Rainfall can reach 50-260 inches a year making it the wettest of the biomes. Temperature in the rainforest barely gets higher than 93 degrees fahrenheit or drops below 60 degrees.
